Caledonia is not only one of the premier courses along the Hammock Coast, it’s one of the best in America. Golf Magazine (No. 29), Golf Digest (No. 77) and Golf Channel travel guru Matt Ginella (No. 16) all rank Caledonia among the nation’s top 100 public layouts.
Famed architect Mike Strantz’s first solo design is equal parts art and architecture. The combination of the area’s stunning lowcountry beauty and the brilliance of Strantz has made Caledonia a bucket list course for players from across the nation.
The course is set amidst centuries-old live oak trees, taking full advantage of nature’s abundant gifts. Caledonia is immaculately maintained and the antebellum-style clubhouse, along with the crab soup served at the turn, contribute to its considerable charm.
The highlight of the day is the unforgettable, par 4 18th hole, a dogleg right that requires golfers to carry water on the approach. The multi-tiered green resides in the shadow of the clubhouse, where players often assemble after their round to watch fellow golfers play one of the game’s best finishing holes.
